Course summary

**About This Course**Study life itself. Discover the why, how and what of living organisms, from how we came to be, to how we’ve since evolved.Our four-year Biological Sciences degree spans the entire scale of biological systems, with the additional benefit of a year spent studying overseas, giving you the chance to experience a different way of life – and to study at a biology department that may focus on different aspects of the subject, broadening your knowledge. Towards the end of your degree you’ll be able to choose your own area of specialisation.We’re world leaders in biological research, and you’ll benefit from exposure to our cutting-edge research in molecular, cellular and whole-organism biology. You’ll get to grips with the application of science to major global challenges, such as environmental management, food security, biotechnology and human health. And you’ll explore the role of biology in tackling the challenges society faces today and in the future.**Overview**Our flagship Biological Sciences degree allows you to study a wide range of science subjects in your first year without prematurely committing yourself to any particular specialisation. You’ll also be given a grounding in other core sciences such as mathematics, statistics and chemistry.You’ll spend your third year studying at one of our partner universities in Australasia, North America or Europe. This is a fantastic opportunity – academically, socially and culturally – to experience university life in another country. Your year abroad, and the adaptability it fosters, will also be an attractive asset to future employers.As the course progresses, the flexibility of the programme encourages you to explore and pursue your own specialist interests within biological sciences. You’ll also have the chance to develop your specific scientific interests through independent research in your final year, when you’ll complete a substantial research project.If you love the world around you – examining how this connects to that, and how that impacts on this – our degree is an excellent choice. You’ll cover topics from antibiotic resistance to biofuels, from cancer to bees. And you’ll lay the foundations for a career at the forefront of biological research, where you could have a positive impact on the daily lives of people all over the world.You will benefit from our enviable position as an integral partner of the Norwich Research Park, which is also home to the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, and independent, world-renowned research institutes such as the John Innes Centre, the Sainsbury Laboratory, the Earlham Institute, and the new £75-million Quadram Institute.**Disclaimer**Course details are subject to change.
